Birch Table and Chairs
A work made by a British sculptor in Okunikko employing natural wood.
영국 조형가가 오쿠닛코에서 자연 목을 사용하여 제작한 작품
This work was produced from October 28th to November 4th, 1984, while Nash was staying in Okunikko. At first, it was a large table-like form with a tree growing out of it. Just before completion, chairs were added. The chairs each face different directions, seeming as if they were sent whirling in a tornado that blew up from the wooden table.
The works by Nash often allude to the relationship between nature and human beings. In this work, too, we might be able to read a story like the following. The table and chairs made to be used by human beings expose the natural character of their material, i.e. wood, and trifle the human beings sitting there.
